This problem has occured in a variety of circumstances on Novell 3 and 4 servers.
I have setup Windows 3.1 as a shared application with the network node setup on the hard disk of individual stations (or in some instances in individual user areas on the network).
I have also done a shared installation of Publisher 2 and MS Office 4.2 or 3, in that order, in the same way.
When attempting to access Wordart2 and/or in some instances Clipart, I get the following messages:
In Publisher - "Unable to launch or communicate with server application. Memory may be low etc....."
In Word 6- "The Server Application, source file or item cannot be found. Make sure that the application is properly installed, and that it has not been deleted, moved or renamed".
The memory is more than adequate (c12mb RAM available c25mb swopfile) and share is in use with the /l:500 swith.
This problem does not exist after the installation of Publisher and does not always occur after the installation of Office. It has sometimes arisen after the system has been in use for some time.
HELP I don't want to have to reload!
